A brand new writer in the fields, Fatima has been taken under my electric spark's RGB- rich and ensures she doesn't engage in excessive snark on the website. It's unclear what command and Conquer are; however, she can talk for hours about the odd rhythm games, hardware, product reviews, and MMOs that were popular in the 2000s. Fatima has been creating various announcements, previews, and other content while here, but particularly enjoys writing regarding Products' latest news in the market she's currently addicted to.

It’s 2022 and major corporations are still using ‘password’ for sensitive information. I’m guessing ‘123456’ was one of them, considering some of the startlingly dumb passwords (opens in new tab) corpos have been caught using recently.
